Thanks to EEG technology, two students at Cornell University can play Pong with their brainwaves. Chuck Moyes and Mengxiang Jiang built EEG device for a final project in one of their labs. Once the class was complete, they took EEG to a whole new level.
The controls work in two ways. By relaxing and concentrating to move the Pong paddle up and down, or by imagining their legs moving (alpha bran wave rhythms and mu brain wave suppression, respectively). Their work really speaks for itself, so here’s the video!
